SHARE Georgia Nicols horoscopes for Aug. 11, 2016

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions from 12:15 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

For the next six weeks, you will put all of your energy into doing anything that will expand your mind. Obviously travel is a fun choice. However, many of you will sign up for a course or attend school to learn something new.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Disputes about shared property, inheritances and the management of jointly held resources will be something you have to deal with until the end of September. (The upside is this same astrological influence amps your sex drive!)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Until the end of September there will be tension in your life dealing with partners and close friends. The upside is it will be easy to put your cards on the table and air your grievances. Nevertheless, be patient and kind.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Until the end of September, you will be gung-ho to work hard because you will take pride in what you do. You will throw your energy into a project and you will accomplish a lot. The only caveat is that you want credit for what you do. (Well, of course.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

It’s not something in the air. It’s a planetary influence that makes you want to party and have fun until the end of September. Yay me! Grab every chance to socialize with others. Romance will be hot and heavy as well. Go for baroque!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Until the end of September, there will be increased tension, activity and chaos on the home front. This could be due to renovations, residential moves or visiting guests. Whatever the case, this tension could create domestic strife. (Especially if you live with your parents.) Patience! Courage!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Those of you who write, edit, teach, act, sell and market will be like PowerPoint on steroids until the end of September because Mars will make all your communications bold, strong and incisive. Caution: Because you identify with your beliefs, you will get into arguments. Easy does it.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You will work hard to earn money in the next two months, and ironically you will work just as hard to spend it. That’s because cash is flowing in both directions! Be careful about impulse purchases and blowing your hard-earned money.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Mars is in your sign until almost the end of September. After that, it will not return until 2018. This means there will be lots of activity in your life! You will work hard because you know you have a chance to show the world what you can do. You will also defend your rights!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It will be easy to fall into little self-defeating acts of behavior in the next six weeks. Ironically, this can make you project your displeasure on to others. When this happens, remind yourself that really you don’t need to confront others — instead, you need to confront yourself. Hmmm?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Until the end of September, your involvement with friends and groups will be active and exciting! Physical activity with friends, especially athletics, will make you feel pumped. It’s a good time to set goals and coordinate your activities with others.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Because Mars is at the top of your chart until the end of September, your ambition will be aroused! Make the most of this because you will not have this kind of energy again until 2018. Work hard to achieve what you want. Just be careful that you don’t threaten the authority of others.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Viola Davis (1965) shares your birthday today. You have great communication skills. You are confident, outgoing and possessed of strong humanitarian values. Initially, this year begins quietly, which is why you might not see major changes until next year; however, it will be a year of growth, construction and building. Do what you can to reduce your debt and strengthen your financial position because you are building for your future!
